On a Lighter Note

These two items are worth sharing.

According to the Washington University Law Quarterly:
"Between 1989 and 2002, the average conviction rate for federal criminal defendants was 84 percent in jury trials, but a mere 55 percent in bench trials"(vol. 83 no.1)... Three quarters of federal criminal defendants choose a jury trial.... Something does not add up.

A piece, in the anthology Vampires, written by Pete Remington diagnoses Anne Rice's characters. Here are the symptoms:
1. They eat oddly and sporadically
2. Sleep too much
3. Lack of Self Esteem

I'd be depressed too if I looked that pasty.
